Strategy[edit | edit source]

Rockbiter Weapon is a highly versatile card in the shaman's arsenal. Early on it can be used to remove enemy minions, preferably by targeting the shaman himself and preserving his own board control. It can also act as a sudden, potent boost in damage at any stage of the game. To maximize damage it is best used on a creature with Windfury, or even a shaman equipped with the Doomhammer.

Lore[edit | edit source]

In World of Warcraft, Rockbiter Weapon is a shaman ability that adds a 30% threat increase to a shaman's spells and attacks and provides a 5% decrease to all damage taken when a weapon is imbued with it.

The weapon that is displayed in the card art is the Axe of Cenarius, wielded by the legendary orc Broxigar the Red.

From Wowpedia:

The Axe of Cenarius is a two-handed, magical wooden axe crafted by Malfurion Stormrage, under the direction of the demigod Cenarius, during the War of the Ancients. It was made specifically for the orc Broxigar, and he described it as being like an extension of his own arm. Created using druidic magic, the axe was enchanted to have the sharpness and density of a diamond and would never break. It proved to be able to slice through any foe with ease.
